Students from Messina have had the opportunity of meeting Mark James through skype twice in 2013. They have met Mario de Simone last March when he came to school as a guest. On December 19th they will be talking with Tatiana Pezzoni. When she went with Sergio’s mother to Hamburg she was 19. Her mum was in Birkenau 11 with her sister and they both survived because they didn’t step forward.
As we have heard the project is doing great progress. Well done everybody in Messina, Eindhoven, Radom, Hamburg and Paris!
France: Anne told us: On the 4th of december Françoise Morgenstern (cousin of Jacqueline Morgenstern) visited the school and the students. And it was quite emotional for all of them.
Poland: Anna writes: „We have been doing some research in our local archives and we’ve been sucessful in finding out some details about some of the children and their parents who lived in Radom. We have taken some photos. The kids have been really busy in the last few weeks with their studies. We are planning to use the information gathered to prepare a series of lectures and invite other schools to attend them.“
